Review: Everything,Everything by Nicola Yoon

Everything,Everything
Author: Nicola Yoon
Published On: 9/1/15
Page Count: 310
Synopsis: (Found on Goodreads)
My disease is as rare as it is famous. Basically, I’m allergic to the world. I don’t leave my house, have not left my house in seventeen years. The only people I ever see are my mom and my nurse, Carla.
But then one day, a moving truck arrives next door. I look out my window, and I see him. He’s tall, lean and wearing all black—black T-shirt, black jeans, black sneakers, and a black knit cap that covers his hair completely. He catches me looking and stares at me. I stare right back. His name is Olly.

Overall Rating: 5/5
I adored this book. I originally rated it a 5/5 for me but after stewing it over I`m thinking I should decrease to a 4/5 because yes that plot twist OMG and the non-awkwardness of Olly and Maddy`s first date. I guess I wanted it to be weird and uncomfortable. I would highly suggest picking this one up though. The format is great and you don’t want to put it down.

Cover: 5/5
I love this cover. It’s Everything it needs to be. The colors are great and I love how the white just contrasts the chaotic bottom. It’s like the two sides to Maddy`s life.

Characters: 5/5
Maddy: She wants to not only live but live a life worth remembering. Being locked in a house and not having an exciting life has to be rough. She is so smart, almost too smart for her own good.

Olly: He is different, but in a good way. Next door he deals with an abusive, alcoholic father, and a mother who won’t leave. At first, he tries to visit Maddy at home, but when that fails epically, he starts writing notes on his bedroom window (Which is so swoon worthy)

Plot: 4.5/5
So this is where it gets hard on my rating. So much happens that I can`t really talk about cause of things. I would like to talk about the format instead though. Anna over at Starcrossedbookblog does an amazing review of this. The format is full of Madeline’s notes, IM`s and just general thoughts. I think the reason why I was able to read this so quickly was due to the format. It was fast paced and flowed so nicely.


Hope you enjoyed my review. Please let me know in the comments below if you`ve read this lovely book.
TTFN,

Ashley
